Biography

Meg Bellamy is Actress.

At this point, The Crown has launched the careers of several of Britain’s most respected young actors, with casting directors Nina Gold and Robert Sterne renowned for finding little-known talents capable of morphing into the Windsors on screen in a way that verges on uncanny. Take Emma Corrin, who joined Peter Morgan’s series as Diana, Princess of Wales fresh out of Cambridge University with only a handful of small parts to their name. “It was like: ‘One day I want to go to the moon – that would be fun,’” they told British Vogue of the surreality of auditioning for the gig in the magazine’s October 2020 issue. Within a year, they would have scooped a Golden Globe for their performance.

Perhaps no other role in The Crown franchise will have been quite as difficult to cast as that of the Duchess of Cambridge, though – making the announcement that recent school leaver Meg Bellamy would be starring as a young Kate Middleton truly internet-breaking. According to Deadline, which broke the news of the casting, Bellamy responded to an open call for submissions for the coveted part, despite having no professional experience. The 19-year-old – who earned an A* for drama at St Crispin’s School, per The Telegraph – studied in Wokingham, not too far from the village where Kate lived with her family as a girl.

 
“Pinch me, please,” Bellamy wrote of the announcement on Instagram. “I will strive to do Kate justice.” The Berkshire native will portray the mother of three during her years at St Andrews University between 2001 and 2005, when her relationship with Prince William began. The pair studied History of Art together (although William would later change his degree to Geography, reportedly on Kate’s advice). Appearing as her future husband? Ed McVey, a Drama Centre London graduate who most recently served as an understudy in Camp Siegfried at the Old Vic. His brilliantly nonroyal comment on landing the role: “I’m absolutely buzzing.”

Of course, Netflix has yet to reveal precisely which moments from the future Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s relationship will be captured in the series, but given how little is known about the early days of William and Kate’s romance, the few moments that the press did manage to capture may well feature. That includes the night when William first began to see Kate as more than a friend during a charity fashion show (specifically after she wore that infamous sheer dress) and the skiing trip to Klosters when the world first realised the pair had become an item.

GlobalEng.biz pays special attention to the activities of famous people: politicians, officials, businessmen, bankers, cultural and sports figures. Their opinion largely determines the development of the political, social and economic life of England and the United Kingdom. The section is constantly edited by our journalists for the relevance of the information. Here you can find information about the CEOs and presidents of top companies in England, officials and public figures who play a key role in the development of the region.
The goal of the project is to create a comfortable information space for all market participants, as well as to introduce the readership to business people in England.
We have created an impressive database of people in England, which contains information about the career path, education and other important information about a person.
Thanks to the automatic calculation of the number of mentions of a person in the news sections "English news" and "English press releases", a rating of the popularity and influence of persons is formed on the portal. The team GlobalEng.biz monitors changes in the rating and encourages project participants for their success. In general, the rating of participants is based on an in-depth analysis of the activity of PR services of famous people, and also reflects the qualitative state of the information field formed by the media and press services around the organization.
"Business people of England" is a project about people who, with their ideas, words and actions, have a great influence on the development and prosperity of England.
